Valentine’s Day Cocktails

cupids arrow cocktail recipe
With just a few days remaining before Valentine’s Day, I suppose it’s time to sort through some of these Valentine’s-themed emails.  There are lots of cocktail recipes in the mix, a testament that no matter your date status for the big day, you can always cozy up to a nice cocktail.

A couple drinks to kick things off –

Cupid’s Arrow

1 ½ parts Maker’s Mark
¼ part DeKuyper Crème de Cacao
¼ part DeKuyper Hazelnut Liqueur
Cream or half and half
Bar of chocolate for garnish

Shake Maker’s Mark, Crème de Cacao and Hazelnut Liqueur with ice. Strain into a cocktail glass, and top with a thin layer of cream or half and half. Garnish with chocolate shavings.

1 part Maker’s Mark
¼ part Apricot Liqueur
6 dashes Peychaud’s bitters

Stir Maker’s Mark, Apricot Liquor and bitters with ice. Strain into a champagne flute, and top with cold Proseco.

And if drinks don’t excite you on Valentine’s Day, consider opting for a Naked Lady instead.

    One of my favorite Valentine’s day cocktails is TY KU’s Will You Be My TY-tini
    1.5 oz TY KU Liqueur
    1.5 oz TY KU Soju
    Splash of Diet Sprite and a squeeze of lime
    It is always a hit and since it is also low in calories, all my girlfriends feel a lot better having a couple more!
